Flowfreight BV works with other AON member to move a big Melt Pump Gearbox from Switzerland via Antwerp port to Houston, TX
They partnered with Seiler Logistics AG – other AON member also based in Seiler, Switzerland – to have 15,660-kilogram weight of object palletized and crated. The unit was then moved by a truck to the port of Antwerp. Upon arrival in Antwerp they loaded the crate onto the flat rack OOG and shipped it to Houston in Texas for their customer.
The challenge for this shipment was having to arrange the whole process within a week, so time pressure was there.
Dimensions of the unit:
1 Crate 17,653 m³, weight 15,660 Kilograms
Dimensions: Length 312, Width 246, Height 230 Centimeters
Over height: 6,0 Centimeters
Over width right: 2,0 Centimeters
Over width left: 2,0 Centimeters

About AerOceaNetwork (AON):
Since 2002 we have been running AerOceaNetwork (AON). We are a non-exclusive group of like minded independent international freight forwarders who want to excel in their markets. At the same time we are building our good name around the globe. Our global forwarding members meet annually to develop their cargo business pipelines and establish personal ties, which quite often even develop into lifelong friendships – another intangible benefit of joining our group of forwarding professionals.
We target positive people who run progressive international logistics companies for our forwarding network membership. We aim to stick to that membership profile and build on it for the future. Everyone benefits from this.
Before becoming our forwarding network member, prospect applicants are required to provide references of other international freight forwarding agents who they’ve worked with over time. We check these shipping references for financial ability, operational capability, mutual sales development & follow up, and communication skills (both in ability as well as response time) as well as other pertinent information. Only companies who pass this process can be offered membership in our group.
